Pilots Forum / AWOS on UNICOM
« Last post by Jay Lawrence on July 10, 2020, 07:05:48 AM »
Hello:

After a recent nav update, it seems some smaller airfields have added an AWOS system, but using 122.8, which of course is VATSIM Unicom. So, when I fly in certain areas, I get the automated weather for nearby fields. This prevents me from using unicom at all.

I can shut off the voice, but the sim still scrolls the AWOS Message across the screen. There is no option to disable the crawl. What's more, the sim overrides the audio from vPilot when these AWOS messages are coming in, so I can't hear anything else.

Two examples are KEPM and KMVM, which of course makes flying the Bay of Fundy a challenge.

I am hoping the solution is not edit each offending airport with an airport editor. I tried that (ADE) with negative results.

Using FSX. (Don't judge, waiting for FS2020 :)

Anyone run into this and if so is there a solution?

Toronto (CZYZ) / Deputy FIR Chief
« Last post by Dean Roy on July 09, 2020, 03:49:27 PM »
I would like to let everyone know that due to some personal time constraints, Justin Bailey has asked to step down as both our deputy chief and instructor.

I would like to thank Justin for the great work he has done during his time in both positions. He will be staying on with us a sa controller and should be around online with us when time permits. Hopefully we can convince him to get more involved in the future when life hopefully returns to something closer to normal.

Over the next while I will be considering what to do for a replacement deputy chief. If anyone has any interest in the position please let me know.

I am assuming that you are asking as an ATC member and not as a pilot? 

While I am only speaking for being a Moncton instructor, we send out standard/approved phraseology for use within Canadian airspace when we have a new student join us.  If you are just commencing training in Montreal, ask your instructor or chief instructor.  Being ATC, the phraseology is much stricter than being a pilot.

Well, I guess my question applies to both french/english. Do we have quick cheat sheets for both french and english. I guess now my brain will have the wrong phraseology burned in. I went thru the power points but I couldn't find the complete list of the 'proper' way to communicate.
